David Seaman, the former Arsenal and Manchester City goalkeeper, accurately predicted the score ahead of the Chelsea vs Manchester City match scheduled for this Sunday at Stamford Bridge. This will be the last match for both teams before heading into the international break.
According to Seaman, Pep Guardiola‘s City will win the match easily without conceding any goals.
While speaking on his weekly podcast, ‘Seaman Says,’ he stated, “I’m going with a 2-0 victory for Man City.”
Table topper City vs mid-table Chelsea
Chelsea currently occupies the 10th position on the Premier League table. Despite their mid-table standing, the team garnered motivation from a convincing 4-1 win against Tottenham in their recent match.
Meanwhile, Manchester City, the treble winners, stands confidently at the top of the points table. Showing their awesome form, City secured a decisive 3-0 victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford just two weeks ago.
Players to watch for
Several players are worth keeping an eye on in the upcoming clash between City and Chelsea. Notable changes in both squads have occurred since their last encounter.
Nicolas Jeakson, the Senegalese striker who recently netted a hat trick against Tottenham is set to face City for the first time. Adding to the anticipation, Cole Palmer, who made a summer move from Man City to Chelsea, will be facing his former team. Moises Caicedo, Levi Colwill, and Axel Disasi are ready to play against City.
Shifting focus to the City side, the team did some impressive signings in the last transfer window. Jeremy Doku delivered a standout performance against Bournemouth. He earned the player of the match title by scoring a goal and assisting four others.
Notably, Chelsea has struggled in recent matchups against City, failing to secure a win in their last six encounters. The question looms whether they can reverse the trend this time.
